Imagine you’re caught in the middle of a storm. All around you, the wind is whipping and the rain is pouring. You know you need to escape, but you can’t. The fear of the unknown keeps you rooted to your spot.
That’s what it feels like when you’re attached to someone toxic. Dutch singer-songwriter Ann King sings about it in her new single, Side Effects. The lyrics are dark and haunting, and they convey an underlying sense of bitterness.
King’s vocal range is impressive, as she effortlessly moves from low notes to soaring high ones without ever losing control. The song’s compelling piano melody provides a rich backdrop for her performance, and the inclusion of instruments such as guitar towards the end adds an extra layer of cinematic charm.
